Rule number one: Only mothers get to have hurt feelings.
Rule number two: Mothers frame instructions as questions. You are not supposed to answer the question, but to take the disguised hint. The proper response to, "Why are you so irritated to be here?" is, "Oh, I'm not--did I seem like I was? I'm just a little sleepy from all the excitement, but I'm happy as a pig in shit!"
Rule number three: Don't say "shit" to your mother.
